JC's quarter in AO.....these are the players he might face to reach the semis...of these 32 players, 2 have beaten him in his 7 match losing streak, most of them are great servers.....what do u think of his chances???

The draw isn't terribly kind to him, but at least it's not as brutal as some of the others... He's facing a couple of huge servers, but i think he'll be ok as they're gonna knock each other out, like verkerk and phlippoussis. I think if he plays well, he will make to the Qrt [hopefully he can go further]. He's in the same Qrt as Coria, but coria is not really great physical with the injury and all, so i think he will make it through..

As some ppl have said, he's not playing badly or anything, just a bit unlucky to lose first round in sydney. The wins in Hongkong should give him some confidence and despite the lack of preparation enroute to the aus open, i think he's in there with a fair chance. :)

A lot of big servers!! Rusedski, Verkerk, Phillippoussis, Mirnyi etc. but as JeLulia88 has said, they'll knock each other out.... There're 4 Spaniards in this part of the draw..No Americans though.... Well anyway, Good Luck Juanqui!!

Yeah good luck! Lets hope that all the big servers knock each other out and that JC has loads of luck and hopefully can play some really good tennis! Go JC!

i think he can beat big servers if he's in a good day. he beat verkerk at rg. but latley he's been having problems against them. roddick and now guccione beat him thanks to their serves ( not only but most). I'm not pessimistic, I can actually say, it's a quite an ok draw for JC. :smoke:

Yup, if they both get that far :)
i really dont think jc's quarter is as tough as some of the other one but his does have a lot of big servers like u guys mentioned so i think as long as he plays better tennis he'll do well.
GOOD LUCK JC!!!! :bounce:
